SE2 and DBCS SE Summary: Only one SQL plan baseline per SQL statement is allowed and SQL plan evolution is disabled.

SE2 and DBCS SE Details:

  1. SQL plan baselines can be created or captured using the following methods:

    • Auto capture (OPTIMIZER_CAPTURE_SQL_PLAN_BASELINE=TRUE)

    • Manual loading from the cursor cache (DBMS_SPM.LOAD_PLANS_FROM CURSOR_CACHE)

    • Migration from stored outlines (DBMS_SPM.MIGRATE_STORED_OUTLINE)

    • Import using DBMS_SPM.UNPACK_STGTAB_BASELINE

  2. All capture and creation methods store only one SQL plan baseline per SQL statement.

  3. SQL plan baselines can be exported and imported using DBMS_SPM.CREATE_STGTAB_BASELINE, DBMS_SPM.PACK_STGTAB_BASELINE, and DBMS_SPM.UNPACK_STGTAB_BASELINE.

  4. Unused SQL plan baselines are not auto-purged.

  5. Alternative SQL execution plans for SQL statements are not added to the SQL plan history.

  6. SQL plan baselines can be altered and dropped (DBMS_SPM.ALTER_SQL_PLAN_BASELINE and DBMS_SPM.DROP_SQL_PLAN_BASELINE).

  7. The following DBMS_SPM functions and procedures are not allowed: CONFIGURE, LOAD_PLANS_FROM_AWR, LOAD_PLANS_FROM_SQLSET, and all functions and procedures associated with SQL plan evolution.

The far sync instance can be installed and used on a server different from the server where the Oracle Database is installed and used. It is not necessary to obtain a separate license for the server running the far sync instance.

Enterprise User Security

If you wish to use Enterprise User Security in Oracle Database Enterprise Edition, you no longer need to license the Oracle Advanced Security option for Kerberos and PKI based authentication. It does require a corresponding Oracle Identity Management Directory Services Plus to be licensed. Any Oracle Advanced Security licenses purchased on or before January 31, 2004, have restricted use of the Oracle Internet Directory (OID) component of Oracle Directory Services Plus to support Enterprise User Security.

Global Data Services

The GSM listener can be installed and used on a server different from the server where the Oracle Database is installed and used. It is not necessary to obtain a separate license for the server running the GSM listener.

Infrastructure repository databases

A separate single instance Oracle Database can be installed and used as an infrastructure repository for RMAN, Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, Automatic Workload Repository (AWR) Warehouse, Global Data Services Catalog, Sharding Catalog, and Grid Infrastructure Management Repository without additional license requirements, provided that all the targets are correctly licensed. It may not be used or deployed for other uses.

The infrastructure repositories for RMAN, Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, AWR Warehouse, Global Data Services Catalog, and Sharding Catalog can be shared in one database, or deployed in separate databases. Enterprise Edition must be used for the infrastructure repository database(s).

If Oracle RAC is used for the infrastructure database, then Oracle RAC licenses for all servers, and Enterprise Edition licenses for all but the first server, are required.

If Data Guard is used for the infrastructure database for RMAN, Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, AWR Warehouse, Global Data Services, and Grid infrastructure management Repository, then an Enterprise Edition license for the standby server is required. The Infrastructure Database for the Sharding Catalog can be protected with Data Guard without a second Enterprise Edition license.

Oracle ASM Cluster File System (Oracle ACFS)

When used with non-Oracle Database files, all Oracle ACFS features are free.

When used with Oracle Database files, all Oracle ACFS features are free, with the following exceptions:

  • ACFS Auditing - Not available (use Oracle Audit Vault*)

  • ACFS Compression - Not available (use Oracle Advanced Compression*)

  • ACFS Encryption - Not available (use Oracle Transparent Data Encryption, part of the Oracle Advanced Security option*)

  • ACFS Security - Not available (use Oracle Database Vault*)

* Requires appropriate full-use licenses to these products or components.

Oracle will provide support services for Oracle ACFS only if the server it operates on also operates an Oracle product, which may include Oracle Linux or Oracle Solaris, which is under an Oracle support contract.

Oracle Automatic Storage Management (Oracle ASM)

Oracle ASM is free to use with all Oracle databases and Oracle ACFS file systems.

Oracle Clusterware

Oracle Clusterware provides cluster membership and high availability monitoring and failover. Oracle Clusterware may be used to protect any application (restarting or failing over the application in the event of a failure) on any server, free of charge. Oracle will provide support for Clusterware only if the server is running an Oracle product, which may include Oracle Linux or Oracle Solaris, that is also under Oracle support.

Oracle Connection Manager

Oracle Connection Manager can be installed and used on a machine different from the machine where the Oracle Database is installed and used. It is not necessary to obtain a separate license for the machine running Oracle Connection Manager.

Oracle Data Guard broker
